Nathan Hughes

Hughes, 23, joins London Wasps this season from Auckland.

Hughes, is a young Fijian who hugely impressed playing for Auckland in their most recent ITM Cup campaign, playing a key role in helping his side reach the final.

While featuring mainly at number 8 for Auckland, Hughes can also play on the blind side and at lock.

Hughes is most excited to get the chance to train and play alongside Tom Varndell who he used to watch as a youngster.

Hughes started playing rugby at St Thomas High School in Lautoka, Fiji in 2008. Coming from a hockey background, Hughes credits the thrill and physical intensity of the game of rugby which lured him into giving it a try.
